"I found it absorbing, but no wonder: it's about one of the truly great film directors by one of film's great critics. I would be surprised if it wasn't the best film biography ever." - John HustonWith the possible exception of Alfred Hitchcock, Federico Fellini is surely the most flamboyantly identifiable motion picture director of all time. Along with De Sica, Rossellini"I found it absorbing, but no wonder: it's about one of the truly great film directors by one of film's great critics. I would be surprised if it wasn't the best film biography ever." - John HustonWith the possible exception of Alfred Hitchcock, Federico Fellini is surely the most flamboyantly identifiable motion picture director of all time.

In June 1985, Fellini was honored with the Film Society of Lincoln Center's annual award for outstanding cinematic achievement at a gala ceremony that included a retrospective of clips from his films.

    I have read several biographies of The Maestro, some more recent than this one, but I believe this effort is the best. It gives the closest look into the elusive mind of Fellini. What was going on to create his masterpieces.

    An Ok book about Fellini - a bit dull. If anyone can suggest better please do.
